surrounding his white house for now. however, under stormy skies in atlanta, mr. obama attempted to move the focus off the irs, benghazi, and the associated press. he spoke about the economy and health care in his address to morehouse college. >> my job as prdz is to advocate for policies that generate more opportunity for everybody. policies that strengthen the middle class and give more people the chance to climb their way into the middle class. policies that create more good jobs and reduce poverty and educate more children and give more families the security of health care and protect more of our children from the horrors of gun violence. that's my job. >> so can the president change the focus from the recent scandals and controversies? let's turn to charles blow in new york and errol in washington. writing for the "new york times." good to see you both. >> ross, let me begin with you. the president seems to be moving forward. his approval rating is up even after all these controversies were revealed. so does washington move forward along with, or will critics continue to kind of rai
to be in the white house. president obama was hit with a trio of controversies. the aftermath of the benghazi hearing, the revelation that the justice department had obtained the phone records of reporters during a leak investigation and an inspector general report found that the irs targeted tea party and conservative groups improperly. the president is trying to pivot from those as we look to next week. but the irs scandal is not going away. people already don't like the irs and this only adds to it. it has the potential to derail the president's second term agenda. obama wants immigration reform done but he has to show he's on top of this scandal to restore credibility to the agency or it will give conservatives a big opening to say, see, the government can't run the irs. how can it implement health care or properly secure the border? it will be very thorny in the it will be very thorny in the next few days and it will it will be very thorny in the nextare you still sleeping? just wanted to check and make sure that we were on schedule. the first technology of its kind... mom and dad, i have great

from mr. obama is own administration and it gets complicated. the white house asked chuck schumer to reintroduce the shield back to limit the white house ability to interfere with news organizations or make reporters reveal their sources and today we found out about the attorney general does not know and varied little about what he does during testimony in front of the house judiciary committee. >> one of the compelling process from a media outlet is to give notice do you know, why that was not done ? >> there are exceptions to the rule i do not know with regard to this particular case why that was or was not done. i don't have a factual basis for that queetion. >> over the course of 24 hours obama masters lead changed its tune while trying to turn the direction of the threat that the scandals pose to the presidency. now to the benghazi e-mail's the white house had more than 100 pages of the males for the talking point* on did deadly attack and the document uniquely timed with the president's actions on the irs and for much more reid turn to fox business washington correspondent
.s. borders. again, live coverage of that over on c-span3. at the white house today, president obama meeting with the turkish prime minister, the two are expected to discuss the situation in syria, among a number of other issues. they'll also hold a joint news conference at noon eastern today . president obama said he'll talk more about the resignation yesterday of i.r.s. acting commissioner steven miller in response to the news that i.r.s. officials targeted certain conservative groups. we'll have live coverage of the news conference from the white house on c-span3. yerl this morning michelle bachmann, who chairs the tea party caucus in the house, and other republican members and representatives of tea party groups across the country held a news conference on capitol hill to discuss the i.r.s. targeting. ere it is. >> thank you, everyone, for being here. my name is michelle bachmann, i'm a member of congress from minnesota's sixth congressional district. i'm also the chairman of the tea party caucus in the house of representatives and a former federal tax litigation attorney for the i.r.s.,
says anything that relates to anybody connected to the white house, mr. obama will really be in trouble. >> interesting right there. >>> let's go back out live to the amgen tour of california that is right now crossing the beautiful golden gate bridge. that is an iconic shot right there. we have some of the world's top cyclists crossing one of the world's most notable bridges. >> that's right. and we'll be right back with more. ,,,,,, . >>> another live look right now at the cyclists in the amgen tour of california, crossing the golden gate bridge. as we speak, 111 cyclists on their way right now to santa rosa from marina green, the final leg of the tour of california. . >>> and here is a look now at this morning's top stories. another big event going on as we speak as well. >> that's right. it's the bay to breakers. it got going in san francisco within the past hour. tilusa of ethiopia finished first among men and diane curry johnson from africa was the top finisher among women. she finished 8th in last month's boston marathon as well. >>> and "face the nation" is next on kpix 5 in a f
burns. as the white house scrambles to resell obama care to the public, democrats are pulling out all the stops. >> we have certain inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. one might argue that education and health care fall into those provisions of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. although health care was not listed per se in the constitution, it should be a constitutional right. >> life, check. liberty, check, pursuit of happiness, check, in the constitution. john, i don't see obama care anywhere in this document. >> it's not, eric. unfortunately the representative and many democrats are ignorant as to just what a right is. a right is aight to action, to pursue your life, liberty and happiness. it's not a right to a freebie or a gooder service from someone else. just a notion of a right to health care means that other people are enslaved to provide you with that health care. the result is the destruction of all rights. that's why the founders understood it to be individual rights. it's your life, your liberty and your happiness. that's why health
's the wrinkle for a lot of people. >> absolutely. and it is fascinating in terms of how the white house has approached this. president obama did say today at the press conference that the first he knew about this was from news reports on friday. it shows the degree to which the irs was not making this information out there public. politically though, it is an issue that both sides will go after it. they realize they have to. the irs is supposed to be tim partial referee. it is something that a lot of folks say if people don't trust the irs in any capacity, they think it is a political arm of the obama administration, it will have dire, dire effects in terms of the ability for any bipartisanship to move forward. i go back to what i said before. this is for the obama administration extremely damaging. because it feeds this conservative idea that government is to blame. the government is corrupt. that they're directing government in a way to personally target republicans. and republicans feel that they don't think it is in any sense playing and there is no type of deal to be made on immigratio
of the interesting parts of the obama administration's and the white house's reaction to the benghazi controversy or scandal is the fact that they have now accepted the fact that what a lot of us were reporting in september and october -- i was with another network and i was reporting all these state department requests being denied, all these individuals on the ground in libya asking the state department we need more security, why are you taking away our airplane, we want a tour of this security team extended. and the white house and state department was pushing back very aggressively in my report saying that's not true, this is not an issue, this is not the case. now they accept that it is true, now they accept that it is the case and it is one of the points of the three controversies before, during and after and the response to the security situation in benghazi, it is the one that they are seeding and it is the one that the independent review concludes was handled incredibly poorly by the state department. >> that's why the president went out of his way just now saying we're going to learn fr
that errors were made. but they were not caused bipartisan views. yesterday president obama named miller's replacement. white house budget official daniel werfel is expected to stay on through september. >>> when a 7th grader from reno started choking on lunch, a quick-thinking friend saved his life. the entire thing was caught on tape at that school. check out dj miller standing and eating, then trying to get a drink of water. turns out he was choking. he gets his friend angelo's attention. angelo without hesitation jumps right into action patting him on the back and then starts in with the heimlich maneuver. and he got his good friend drinking and breathing once again. >> i think he could have died or something and just glad i was here. he is one of my best friends. so it's good to still have him here. >> angelo says he never really learned how to do the heimlich. it just says -- he says instinct just kicked in. the school is now planning on holding a heimlich lesson for the entire student body. probably a good idea. >> that is a good idea. i think everyone should know how to do that.
the white house but brock obama has not been damaged yet but holder holds the key to future damaging and he simply resigns. people come and go and half of the cabinet officers left already from the first term. why not holder? why cling to the next three years of the attorney general that many people don't have confidence and? neil: douglas brinkley we shall see. good to have you. when consumer protection groups protect themselves and what makes you think they are interested in protecting you? the news that you may not want to use. after this. neil: they are supposed to look out for you but today they are looking now for themselves first the consumer protection in vero workers voting to unionize that is not good for consumers. would you make of this? >> we saw this with tsa when they decided to unionize as well when it should be more about national security and they're more concerned about what they need to wear and what benefits they will get what is interesting with the consumer financial protection and bureau is this came about because of office space they are moving into new headquarters
an obama administration effort to silence critics. time and again white house officials said that's not so and never a good day when the spokesman has to respect defend the president's respect for the first amendment. >> thanks, jim. >> kathleen carol, good to have you with us. justice department says we didn't do anything improper. they say, look, we can get your records. you made the phone call. phone companies have them. we can get them. do you think something illegal was done? >> i don't know because we don't know anything. they have seized secretly the phone records for two months of ap phones, 20 different phone lines and, you know, i have no way to know if that's illegal or not. >> attorney general holder said that and the deputy attorney general wrote you a letter saying this, we are required to negotiate with the media organizations in advance of issues subpoenas unless doing so would pose a threat to the integrity of the investigation. they say they were looking in to try to find the person that leaked the information to you of a cia operation in yemen. they said they need to fin
of justice says it's now looking into whether the irs violated any civil rights. >>> newly released white house e-mails provide a glimpse into how the obama administration handled the talking points right after the benghazi terror attack. the 99 pages of e-mails between the white house, state department and cia detail the preparation of those points, the same ones susan rice used the following sunday on multiple morning news shows. an e-mail from then cia director david petraeus reveals some of thinks hesitations. petraeus writes, "no mention of the cable to cairo either? frankly, i just as asoon not use this then." the concern after the deputies scratched out mentions in initial talking points memo about al qaeda, the experience of fighters in libya, a warning to the embassy on the eve of the attack and more. >>> u.s. officials say a person who played a central role in the benghazi attack has been identified. federal criminal charges against that person will soon be made public. >>> attorney general eric holder says it wasn't his him but his number two who made the call to subpoena phone

is a social innovator and appointed by president obama to the white house council for community solutions. thank you all for being here. >> thank you for having us. >> our goal is to get to solutions why are people poor? >> i think the media and legislators have a certain attitude about poverty and about people who are poor, so first of all, we need to change our attitudes and make sure they are at the table, the decision-making table and that they have an opportunity to have a voice in the media as well. >>> so we've got attitudes, we've got or wage structure, and we've got an issue of childhood poverty. mayor, do you have a different way of imagining why are people poor? >> i think people are poor, because we are turning away from making the hard decision, we are no longer treating poverty in the united states of america as a national crisis, and the entire discussion around poverty has moved away. so in my mind, many of our conservative friends have been winning the argument. we're not making -- we now immediate to make, because those initiatives have lost in terms of public opinion de
-term curse for obama? >> talk about a bad week for the white house. add on the i.r.s. spying on tea party groups, and this benghazi situation, and i think you have to start to wonder about the second term. remember katrina hit in august of 2005, a couple months after the point we are at in the second term. i remember a former bush administration official telling me long ago they were having staff problems, long after robert left. i said, are you guys on the b team? and they said, no we're on the vertical team. the obama administration is going to have some difficulties, you know, staffing is the white house with top-tier really smart officials, because those officials they went through in the first five and eventually six years get tired and burned out. so this is the cycle, this is the big problem that any second-term white house faces. i think the obama folks are getting the taste of it. >> robert appreciated that. i'm just speaking for him. congressman says tack, our next topic is the landmark rulings. ruth bader ginsberg spoke yet say she supports a woman's right to choose, however sh
